There was never a doubt from the time my husband decided to propose, that James and Williams would be the go to jeweler for all our wedding needs. From selecting diamonds, settings, metals and bands the whole process could not have been easier....
My wife and I felt completely confident in their abilities and selections. Not only did they meet our wedding day needs, they also provided us with gifts for our bridal party, parents and each other. Although their best attribute is the quality of their product, you can't say enough good things about a family run business. And working with them is like being part of the family.

I am so glad my husband chose James & Williams for my engagement ring! Unbeknownst to me, my husband worked with Bill for over two months to find the perfect ring for me. I could not be happier with the result. After meeting Bill myself, I c...
an now understand why – he is friendly, helpful, incredibly knowledgeable, and he takes the time to make sure you know every angle of this huge decision you’re making. When I found out my husband knew more about “the 4 c’s” then I did, I knew he had found the right place!
I had the opportunity to work with Bill myself when we designed my wedding band together. After I showed him my inspiration, he created a custom design just for us and sourced 14 beautiful baguettes. I was able to try on a casting of the design so that I could picture exactly how the finished product would turn out. The result is a stunning, unique eternity band that I am absolutely in love with. Along with the perfect ring Bill helped choose for my husband, we now have a beautiful set that is such a special reminder of our wedding day.
The entire staff is kind, welcoming, and always helpful. We are so thankful to have James & Williams in our lives and look forward to using them for years to come.

y wedding band just as much as I love my engagement ring! It is perfect.
They were just as easy to work with over email as they were in person which definitely helped being that we moved in the middle of wedding planning and were not as conveniently located to the store.
The overall experience was so easy and wonderful.

ore they will order it and make sure you get it by the time you need it. My husband and I unwittingly purchased our wedding gifts to one another there (James and Williams did a great job of helping out with hiding of the purchases!) and my husband's wedding band. We had a piece engraved and it is seriously the most intricate and delicate engraving I have ever seen! I was amazed they could fit so much onto something so small - again, super accommodating and fair! Love, love them!

I got my engagement ring setting, my wedding band, and my husband's band all custom made at JWJ. Because we had such a good experience with the rings, I ended up getting custom necklaces made for my bridesmaids, Waterford glasses for the grooms...
men, and getting my husband cuff links as a gift for the big day as well. The customer service was unparalled.
The sales staff and JWJ were more than I ever expected, especially Danielle. Everyone I talked to there went above and beyond during every step of the project. I was super picky and they would make a wax model of the engagement ring setting so I could actually see and try on what I saw in my mind to see if it was really what I wanted. I had to go through 3 different versions of the wax models before I was happy. Everyone was patient and very kind throughout even though at times my indecisiveness got the best of me.
Everything came out EXACTLY the way my husband and I wanted, and the best part is that no one in the world has the same ring. Another one of my favorite parts of the experience was that Danielle helped me to think of a way to incorporate a piece of jewelry from my late mother in law into the necklaces of my 2 new sisters in law, who were also bridesmaids. The creativity and taste was of a high level, and I was so pleased with how the necklaces turned out - they were beautiful and the emotional meaning came through just as I imagined.
I loved JWJ, they played a big role in making our big day feel really special, beautiful, and meaningful.

I first went to James and Williams Jewelers while looking for an engagement ring for my now fiancé. It's a pretty intimidating experience for a guy and the one thing I was worried about was getting taken advantage of because I know nothing abo...
ut diamonds or even jewelry for that matter. However, after walking into J&W and speaking for a little bit with Danielle and Kristin, I knew I wouldn't have to worry about this.
The first thing that impressed me was just how much they knew about the products they offer. I know that most jewelers know the four C's of diamonds but they were able to tell me about where the different diamonds came from and what made an African diamond different from one mined in Canada. This helped in my decision making immensely because I was able to really get the best value possible.
I provided them with a budget that I was comfortable with and then they worked with me to find the best ring possible. Never once did I feel pressured to go above and beyond what I had set as my price point. They were tremendously professional and helped me pick out the perfect ring.
I also think that the fact that Danielle and Kristin are younger made the whole process much easier. With other jewelry stores I had stopped into I was working with older sales people and while that's not a bad thing, I was able to relate to Kristin and Danielle much easier. I felt like they knew what my girlfriend would like.
The best part about the whole experience was after I had ordered the ring. An unexpected event came up with my family and I moved up my proposal date so that when we went to see everyone I would hopefully have a new fiancé. I called J&W on Wednesday (leaving to see family on Saturday) to see if the ring was in and they informed me that it was still being made. However, Danielle made a personal call to the manufacturer and was able to get the ring rushed to be there on Friday for me to pick up. They went WAY above and beyond what they should have and I can not thank them enough.
This is not just the best jewelry store that I've been to but it's one of the best run businesses that I've done business with. They now have a customer for life!!! Before you make your next jewelry purchase go see them. You won't be sorry.
